Strawberry Chipotle Jam


The recipe is from a community cookbook called The Delft 'n Spoon. The Esther Circle of The First Reformed Church in West Sayville, New York . 


Ingredients:

7 Cups Strawberries,  (around 3 lbs.)
2 large Lemon, zested and juiced
6 1/2 Cups sugar
2-3 canned Chipotle Peppers (packed in Adobo sauce- if you like it spicy,double the chipotles)
1 tsp. Salt

Directions:

Crush the berries into small pieces, if it's more than 7 cups, not a problem!

In a blender, add the lemon juice, zest, and chipotles that you’ve picked out of the can. Blend until liquefied.

In an 8 quart stock pot, place the liquid from the blender,  berries, salt and all of the sugar. Heat on medium high heat and bring to a low boil. Simmer for 15 minutes, watching and stirring constantly. It may boil over, so watch the pot.

Check for gel consistency by placing a teaspoonful of jam on a frozen plate. If you can draw your finger in a straight line through it and it stays separated and not runny than go to the next step. If the jam isn't just right, continue to simmer and check it this way every 5 minutes.

Place the hot jam in sterilized jars and seal in a hot water bath. If you have never canned before, I added a link below. 

This site has lots of good information.

  1. Boy that's pretty-and VERY tasty too I bet. I love fruit and heat in jams. Do you serve it with cream cheese on crackers like pepper jelly? Heck, I bet it would be good brushed on chicken and grilled too. I'll admit, I'm not much of a jelly/jam maker...maybe someday I'll get brave and give it a go. There's so many good recipes out there for it.

    Thanks Linda! :)

    1. I made this in Florida awhile back. You know how I get great deal on strawberries down there.

      I use it on crackers with cream cheese or mix it into other stuff- you know how I love to experiment!

  3. Boy Linda, this one looks so pretty. I am not a strawberry person, but this looks like those who are will love it. Like Carol, I am not a jelly/jam maker, but for those who are, I am in awe.

    1. Hi Eileen- It's so good! Yes, it had some heat but it's not really hot. Serve it with cream cheese on crackers.

      Hope you try it.

  7. That really is so different from the jams we get in the UK - and really intriguing! I've had chilli jam a few times,but never chilli strawberry. I bet it's not only awesome with cheese, but possibly with chocolate.

    1. Hi Karren-

      When we were in Florida Walmart had a deal that if another store had something on sale they would meet the price.
      I picked up lots of strawberries at a bargain and thus it was a good time to make this recipe.
      If you make it let me know how it came out,

      See you Friday at the party.

      Linda

  28. OMG!! I tried this today. It is in the final stage of processing on the stove. I did not have 7 cups strawberries so I used about a cup and a half of some strawberry rhubarb sauce I had made. I used a 7 oz can and a 12oz can of chipotle peppers. It is so good I am saving some for the pork chops tonight.

  29. I am making another batch today, I keep giving it to my friends and kids. Sanford wants me to make it exactly like before, lol. I will try messing with it next time ( adding governors sauce etc. ) I did notice that I made the last batch a bit different on accident. I put the adobo sauce into the blender to. I think that is why it is so good on meats and not really a jam I would put on a bagel. Thanks again for the inspiration.
